1998 Subaru Impreza RS 2dr Coupe AWD

Review

Very fast in the corners, but a little lacking on exit. It needs the new WRX's 2.0L turbo, albeit without its inherent ugliness. This is the best Impreza to date (excluding the WRX), especially in the styling department, but also in the handling department.

Favorite Features

I love to drag this car! It has awesome grip off the line and the shifts can be snapped off with a smoothness I've never experienced in any other car. The high roof makes for oodles of headroom (I would know, I'm 6'4") and the seats are superb on long trips.

Suggested Improvements

The exhaust makes a loud drone at 80, which is about 3500 rpm. This car could make fantasic use of the new WRX's turbo four. The factory speakers are flimsy and produce a hollow, muffled sound.
